It’s with great sadness we share with you the news of past Royal College president Dr. Jean Couture’s passing. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Dr. Couture was a generous, talented professor and surgeon, whose career benefitted many patients and colleagues. We had the privilege of experiencing his professionalism and kindness first hand, as he was a respected member of Council for many years before being named President-elect of the Royal College in 1983.
He served as President from 1984 to 1986, championed involvement in health and public policy, and promoted a stronger francophone point of view within the organization. We are very proud to have had the opportunity to work with him.
